To mark the reopening of the Centre Speranza-Albert II, the Prince’s Government has announced free access for residents of the Principality of Monaco.
The Centre Speranza-Albert II, which closed its doors in March 2020 due to the health crisis, reopened on Tuesday 2 May 2023.
The Centre, which offers therapeutic day care to residents of the Principality of Monaco who are suffering from Alzheimer’s disease or cognitive impairment, seeks to prevent social isolation, maintain the functional and cognitive capacities of its users and offer respite to family carers.
To further enhance its social model of excellence, the Prince’s Government has decided to make the Centre completely free to access.
Practically speaking, users may attend the Centre from 9 am to 5 pm, Monday to Friday. Meals are available on site and a vehicle specifically adapted for people with reduced mobility can transport users from their homes to the Centre and back again.
A therapeutic and sociable activity programme will be organised each month by a dedicated and experienced multidisciplinary team.
For Government Minister Christophe Robino, “carers, and not just family carers, play a vital role in supporting elderly people. With the reopening of the Centre Speranza-Albert II, and free access, the Prince’s Government is keen to offer solutions that will both provide some relief for carers and support the local residents who will use it, with a view to preventing health problems and promoting social cohesion in the Principality.”
